Aunt Hattie's foster home moves to West Baltimore

Aunt Hattie's Place, a foster home founded in 1997 for eight boys, has moved to the 4400 block of Maine Ave. in West Baltimore.

The brainchild of Hattie N. Washington, a former assistant superintendent of Baltimore schools, the home - which used to be in East Baltimore - is for kids ages 8 to 15.

Washington used part of her retirement savings to fund the house initially. The new facility, for which a grand opening was held Oct. 5, was paid for in part by $150,000 in community development bond funds appropriated by the Maryland General Assembly; $87,248 from the Department of Housing and Community Development; and contributions from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and the state's weatherization program also assisted, said Baltimore City housing spokesman Kevin Brown.
